Halloween has been at the center of attention lately with the surprising announcement that Jamie Lee Curtis would be returning to the horror franchise in the iconic role of Laurie Strode in next year’s new installment. Now, the film aims to add Judy Greer of Jurassic World and Ant-Man to its cast as Karen Strode- the daughter of Laurie.
The news comes per a Deadline exclusive, which revealed that the actress is in negotiations to star alongside Curtis in the film. Halloween 2018 is being directed by David Gordon Green from a script co-written by himself and Danny McBride, and is expected to retcon every film of the franchise past the 1981 sequel.
Regardless if Judy Greer ends up taking the role or not, this news confirms that Laurie Strode has a daughter in the new film… and that she’s about to meet Michael Myers.
